Egypt is one of the civilizations in Civilization VI.

Description[editedit source]

In Civilization VI, each civilization has two abilities. One is based on what the nation has done throughout history and the other is tailored to what happened during the ruler's reign. Cleopatra leads the Egyptian civilization. Cleopatra is famous not only for rising to power in Egypt but also for her famous affairs with both Julius Caesar and Mark Anthony believed to have changed the course of history in both Egypt and Rome.


The Egyptian civ special ability is called Iteru. It allows Egypt to build districts and wonders faster if they're located on Rivers. Floodplains do not block the placement of Districts and Wonders.

Cleopatra gives Egypt improvements to Trade Routes. External Trade Routes from Egypt give Egypt additional Gold. Trade Routes from other civilizations give Egypt additional gold as well and food for the originator. This makes Egypt an attractive trading partner and a valuable ally.

Egypt's uniqueunit is the Maryannu Chariot Archer, which gets bonus movement when it starts on open terrain. Early in the game is it best at fast attacks. Its mobility means it can respond to wide range of threats.

Egypt also gets the Sphinx as a unique tile improvement. Sphinxes provide Faith and Culture and get bonuses when build adjacent to a Wonder.

The Egyptians are a wonder focus civilization and especially powerful in the early game when they start near a river. They're also uniquely valuable partners to other civilizations, so rather than isolating themselves, the Egyptians remain central to the political landscape throughout the game.

A while ago I returned to Civilization VI with Cleopatra and that was fun. I decided to start a new game with another ancient leader. This time, Gilgamesh from Sumeria.

Civ Vi Cleopatra Strategy

Gilgamesh’s bio is pretty inspiring. Here’s what it says:

Must rests upon your shoulders, King Gilgamesh. Your own people, and many people of the world, look to you as leader. But you are more than a mere man, and the weight of the world will never cause you to waver. Encourage the people of Sumer to settle the fertile lands along rivers, and be sure to choose your allies carefully – for there will be many vying for a piece of your strength. Venture forth, for it is time to begin your epic tale.

The Sumerian Empire gets a few key advantages early in the game. These include:

Adventures of Enkidu

You may declare war on anyone at war with your allies without incurring warmonger penalties. When at war with a common foe, you and your allies share pillage rewards and share combat experience gains if within 5 tiles.

Epic Quests

When you capture a Barbarian Outpost, receive a Tribal Village reward in addition to the usual Gold. Pay half the usual cost to levy city-state units.

There are also two units that are unique to the Sumerian Empire.

The War-Cart is a special land unit that is better than any other civilization’s starting units, so it gives you a distinct advantage in the early part of the game. It’s very useful for raiding Barbarian outposts to collect on the Epic Quest reward, above.

This is a special land improvement that only the Sumerian Empire can build.

Getting Started

Cleopatra Civ Vi Guide

So here’s how I started out the game. My first city is named Uruk, and it’s on the coast. I hope my people like crab! There are some nice trade goods nearby, so this seems like as good a place as any to begin my civilization.

The game got off to an interesting start. After founding my first few small cities, I came into contact with a neighbor — Pedro II of Brasil, and Teddy Roosevelt of America. They both traded gold for open borders and since it’s still early in the game, I accepted. I could use the gold, and giving access to my tiny little empire is not such a big deal when they could just walk around it anyway.

But a few turns in, these guys turned on me and both declared formal war! Maybe they just don’t like my beard or something. Who dares to cross Gilgamesh?

Fortunately, I already had some War-Carts ready to go, so it wasn’t too long before I taught a very important lesson to Pedro II. Don’t mess with Gilgamesh.

Now the only problem is that all the other Civilization leaders are treating me as a warmonger. Hey, I was attacked!

With Brasil gone, and its valuable cities part of my Empire, I can turn my attention to the South to see if I can expand. It looks like I’ll need some strategic resources, like Iron.
